Apple issues apology after new Maps app features 67 spelling variations of ‘Jumeirah’

CUPERTINO: Tech giant Apple was yesterday forced to issue a rare apology after complaints regarding its new mapping service.

In a statement, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that he was “extremely sorry for the frustration” users across the United Arab Emirates had experienced with the application, which was introduced with the company’s latest iOS6 mobile service, following reports that the service had included 67 spelling variations for ‘Jumeirah’.

“It also seems that we had completely erased Ajman,” he added, although he admitted the mistake hadn’t yet resulted in any customer complaints.
